| From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1955: MISS PINK(Milliken '55). The outstanding quality of this new iris is the intensity of its coloring. A pinker flamingo pink that is nearly a self. Only a shade of difference makes the falls lighter than the standards and the hafts are smooth with just a hint of buff. The bright tangerine beard is not out of place here, because of the brightness of the whole flower. Substance is excellent and the form semi-flaring; erect, closed standards. Both parents of this plant were eastern-bred, so there should be no question of its hardiness. A fast increaser. Introduction of this iris has been recommended by some very prominent judges of the A.I.S., and we heartily agree with their choice. t is a beautiful iris. $15.00
